Welcome to my website (http://mrsduffy2ndgrade.weebly.com). This website will be updated every Sunday and will include what my students will be working on in class, student expectations, homework assignments and special events happening at school.
Monday, May 22, 2017-Friday, May 26, 2017 *All Math homework will be from the Go Math text book, practice workbook or teacher made practice sheets. Students will be assigned a few problems to practice what was covered in class that day. All assignments will be reviewed the next day.
Math-Students will be practicing 3-digit addition and subtraction with regrouping, telling time to the nearest 5 minutes and other ways to describe time (half past, quarter past, and quarter till an hour). They will also be connecting arrays to multiplication and division (fact families), and exploring fractions.Vocabulary 2-dimentional shapes (2D), 3-dimentional shapes (3D), attributes, angles, sides, vertices, faces, cubes, spheres, rectangular prism, quadrilaterals, triangles, pentagon, hexagon, fractions, partition, parts or shares, equal. Fluency practice (+,-, + & -) google search that's a fact (Harcourt...) usually first sight. Great practice sight where students set their own goals. *Word Problem Strategy "CUBES"-1 Read the problem 2 Circle the numbers and underline what they represent 3 Put a rectangle around the question to be answered 4 Elaborate (visualize problem-draw a picture of your plan) 5 Solve the problem and explain how they know.
Science-Students will be researching and writing a report about animal habitats. They will then build a model of their animals habitat. Please send in a shoe box for this project if you are able to. Vocabulary-scientists, matter, observe, observations, properties, physical and chemical properties, mass, weight, grams, balance scale, weights.
